Recommended Posts

Gday eveyone, my name is Andrew or Drew.

As of last night i now own a R33 skyline GTS-T :( , so i have become a member on this forum. Just looking around you guys have some good info on this forum and as mines fairly stock, ill be hopeing to do some mods latter down the track.

The first mods will be fixing the stock EBC and the fuel pump. (Wont have to spend any money on these)

Ill be hopeing too join some car cruises to. So yeh if you see a White R33 around Vic Park its probably ME.

Hey Drew,

Welcome and hope to see you at some events soon.

Just as a heads up, if yours was made in Nov 1995 it'll actually be classed as a series 1.5!!! Between the series 1 and series 2 (late 1995) nissan decided to put some of the improved bits going into the series 2 into the last of the series 1's. So yours should have series 1 headlights, dash etc but will have a series 2 ecu, coilpacks. Doesn't sound like much but these things are different...ie series 1 coilpacks won't fit in your car etc :(

Black_CSR- I keep a look out for you.

I have actually herd about a series 1.5 but didnt really look into it. And havent relized that mine is one. What is the advantage of the series 2 ecu and coil packs??

Don't know exact specifics but the series 2 ecu has a better tune etc. I believe the diff in coilpacks is that series 1's have an ignitor above each coil whereas the series 2 has a remote one.

All i do know is that when manufacturers make these kinda changes it is to improve the replaced part for whatever reason.

Ok thanks ant95GTR..

Hopefully I will be at the next Cruise.

Im already thinking about getting the exhaust done all the way through.. Currently has 3inch SS cat back. Are those group buy? dump and front pipes the best way togo?

    • The boy crashed his Patrol a while ago, so he is now driving his mum's ASX and she is driving my Honda I initially said he could have the Honda to drive around (he's a good kid currently training at the police academy), but, his mum was quick in saying that he "will" take the ASX and she will take the Honda, he was a bit upset with that, he rates the manual Honda more than the automatic ASX (mums taxi), and I'm getting the feeling she enjoys thrashing the manual Honda around In other news, I'm looking at a MX5 NB series 2 on Saturday  I always loved my NB series 1, but after stripping it down because I'm a idiot it wasn't fun cruising or driving around daily, and Jackie refused to drive it, which was an issue if we went out, because her refusing to drive it meant I lost my designated driver if we went to a party, or dinner, or...... basically anywhere where I could get a glow on Yes yes, I may need a new job if I decide to buy https://www.seek.com.au/apprentice-hairdresser-jobs/in-All-Sydney-NSW Plus giving the Honda to the boy, which is my cunning plan, will give me enough wifey type credits to turn up in another car Meh
    • Yeah I've just been checking it out on GTR registry and its the emerald green pearl (DS0) and only 610 made for S1 RS-Four V (if i'm understanding correctly) so I feel obliged to restore the paint to as close to original as possible!
    • Thankyou, sir! Yeah I'm having a lot of fun rewiring bits of the car. I used to dislike wiring a lot before, I dont like it any more but it is getting easier
